Picking up laundry in the Himalaya.

Even a chore as mundane as picking up dried laundry from the rooftop is not mundane — if your rooftop is surrounded by snowy mountains of the Himalaya.

I thought of this today while picking up a jacket when I suddenly turned my head around to look at these mountains that (still) leave me struggling for words. I felt as if the mountains were watching me pick up the jacket. I smiled and picked up the jacket.
